She has a Master's in Literacy from the University of Maine and has inspired the youth of America for seventeen years.

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” — Mahatma Gandhi

I want to go back to just a week ago, when I, blissfully ignorant, did not realize that many animals in shelters across the country are packed in gas chambers and suffocated as a form of “euthanasia.” Being a lifelong animal rights advocate, I can’t believe I didn’t know this unt...

I Kill Me: Tales of A Jilted Hypochondriac (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 30, 2012 03:12PM
Description: Christine Bacon has a fatal attraction. To all things fatal. A veteran hypochondriac, her near-death experiences are exacerbated when her husband proposes they have a threesome with Eleanor, his busty British massage therapist, to “shake things up.” Christine reluctantly agrees (although she is more wholesome than threesome), never expecting just how much she'd be rattled. As her marriage to Richard, a/k/a “Dick,” falls apart, so, too, does Christine, whose fear of her own demise causes her to research every freckle, blemish, cough, bump, lump, tingle and hiccup. She isn't a doctor, but she plays one on the internet. There is solace for Christine: in teaching, raising daughters Lily and Carli, leaning on her friends, and wearing out the shower massager. In order to heal, she struggles to become her own person and to view her symptoms (and ex-husband) as less malignant, while searching for that special someone who will love her—despite her grave condition.

"Great book I read in two days. I tried to tell a class of freshmen about it yesterday and how good it was, and they all said, "It sounds so depressing." But it wasn't at all! I said, "No more so than any story about a kid in middle school." It rea..." Read more of this review »

"This book was great. If you can get past the first chapter (which is not as graphic as it seems), it is quite an enjoyable book. I read it as a supplement to my more serious reads. At points it had me laughing out loud.

Writing: 4 stars
Plot: 3 star..." Read more of this review »

“If my ex-husband could move on, I could, too. I would search for my gardener, someone who would help me to grow and bloom, but who would recognize the fragility of a new flower just starting to poke out of the ground.

If I was lucky, he’d have a long cultivator.”
Tracy H. Tucker, I Kill Me: Tales of A Jilted Hypochondriac

“I felt myself begin to slide down into that recognizable abyss, down and down, where I knew it would be cold and dark, but which had become more familiar to me than my face in the mirror. I knew I should instead be grateful for this time with my two best friends, for having laughed, but I let myself slide anyway. And hoped someone would pull me back up.”
Tracy H. Tucker, I Kill Me: Tales of A Jilted Hypochondriac

“You’re not a doctor. Remember that.
No, but I play one on the internet.”
Tracy H. Tucker, I Kill Me: Tales of A Jilted Hypochondriac

“Mom, I have to go. I think this Matt character is here."
"Are you sure it's him?"
Julie peered into the car as the window lowered. "I see a maniacal-looking guy with brightly-colored candy in one hand, and he's waving a sickle in the other. Oh! He's beckoning me to the car. This must be my ride.”
Jessica Park, Flat-Out Love
